As a young science professional I would be remiss not to have a presence on the web. One problem was that having a static page with only my address and CV just felt self-serving and sterile. Instead I wanted a home on the web where I could post interesting tidbits of information, practice my writing, and engage in scientific outreach to the public. This website was the result. It currently consists of a weblog (http://prefrontal.org/blog) to handle topical discussions and a wiki (http://prefrontal.org/wiki) to store readily accessible information.
In the time that prefrontal.org has been active I have been quite happy with its direction. My only frustration so far has been the relatively low amount of time I am able to dedicate to new content due to other obligations [read: being a postdoc].
About Craig Bennett
I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Psychology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I started off my undergraduate education in the Aerospace Engineering department at the University of Kansas, but quickly became disenchanted with the program. I was seeking purpose in my work, and designing airplane doors wasn’t providing it. I soon found a home in cognitive psychology, a field that sought to understand how information is processed in the brain.
